Well its taken a few days but I am about to do my 'first' post!
So here goes ......
Firstly let me introduce myself, my name is Wendy, I am married with 2 children (sounds like a TV show!!) both boys, 12 and 10, I work part time and in my spare time I just love to scrap! I also make all my birthday cards and most Christmas cards (as I normally leave it too late to make them all I end up buying the odd pack!) I owe getting into this hobby to my friend and 'partner in scrap', the lovely and talented Corrina, who had a home demonstration for card making back in 2001 and we have both been totally addicted since! Check out the beautiful birthday card Corrina made for me last week here whilst you are there check out the couple of layouts I have in their gallery too, here.
So for a little more of an 'outlet' I have started this blog to share some of my work, and exchange ideas with anyone who wants to join in, as my 3 boys 'just don't get it!' and a girl needs a little more encouragement for her work don't you think?! Hence the name of my blog 'my creative outlet'!
So here is my first layout ... I made this last night for a challenge set by Jenae over at my local scrap store, Scrapbooks from the Heart. A colour challenge using primarily blue and orange, I love these colours together so I had no probs there! I also found the perfect photo for it in my stash! This is my oldest son in the playground at Kings Park the day before he went back to school in February 2008. I love photos where you catch them unaware and not looking at the camera, he was having a quiet moment (very rare!!) and he just looks so deep in thought! (Another rarity so maybe he was just having a rest as it was SO very hot that day!! lol!)
Anyway hope this was not too long a post and that I didn't bore you?! .... till next time and thanks for looking!
p.s more layouts to follow .... soon!
